Motherhood is hard! It changes us in ways we never could imagine, our bodies, our lives, but most of all our hearts. It is hard, but my GOD is it beautiful.
Among the bravest human beings on earth are the women who are willing to bring a child into the world. It is the deepest form of love there is. A mother and child share a heartbeat forever. They will always be linked together in the ongoing chapters of their respective lives.
When a woman holds her baby for the first time she is flooded with the circle of love that enriches all of humanity. The bond that is formed between mother and child cannot be broken, no matter what life brings. Maternal love knows no bounds or restrictions. It does not ebb and flow as it can in other relationships. A mother’s love is unconditional and the greatest gift a child can receive.
Special Thank you to Sarah Gonia Photography for coordinating and just basically being amazing in general.
